3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 mL bottle from LCBO served cool in a tulip glass. Hazy light golden with a full white froth. Citrus, grassy, peppery, lots of yeast and some wet bread dough, playful fruity esters, a touch of funk, excellent. Medium body, fairly lively effervescence. Richly fruity with restrained spiciness, a little alcohol, fairly full yeast character; off dry with gentle bitterness and a long, slightly spicy, citrus and estery finish. Almost as good as Saison Dupont.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smells very refreshing, coriander, wheat, belgian yeast and a bit of farmhouse tart character. Very hazy yellow, long lasting white head and streaming bubbles. Aesthetically pleasing. Tart flavors upfront, some citric notes clean middle and finishing with some belgian yeast sweetness, spice and grassy hoppyness. Quite nice. Medium bodied, highly carbonated. Refreshing saison but seems overpriced for what it is.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
It comes in a corked 750-millilitre bottle and is unfiltered and bottle-seasoned, which accounts for its slightly cloudy appearance. It has a fruity yeast aroma and some spicy citrus in the flavour. Excellent.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the brewery. Pours a hazy pale orange/yellow with a bunch of white head that dissipates somewhat quickly. Smell is some grass, lots of citrus, and some farmhouse. Palate is medium bodied with good carbonation. Taste is a bit sweet at first then mixes with some sourness before getting decently bitter. The aftertaste is a bit sweet at first though loses out to the long lasting bitterness in the end. Quite a decent saison, glad it’s close enough for me to grab tons of it.
